Salud, Lupe Sierra Stamm!! Great story, from a true patriot! My own service was with the Navy Waves, and all
stateside, but my heart beats a little faster when I hear or read of women who also served in the "War to end all wars". I, too, loved the military and went on to teach school (some in Deming). Our memories will always be with us. We were blessed to have served our country, no?

Thank you so much for this story and honoring these amazing woman. The Sun News needs to run more stories like this and a lot less of the Jerry Springer crap they run.
